3. A Second Plaque Beneath the Oak Tree
The plaque reads:
This oak tree is dedicated
to the memory of
Robert C. Littlefield
a man who devoted his life
to the service of this country.
A native son, he gave selflessly to time,
energy and resources to his beloved city,
its heritage and traditions.
This oak serves as a fitting reminder
of all he meant to us.
Robert C. Littlefield
January 18, 1930 – October 10, 1980
